Summary Statement of Research Interests

  • I am interested in examining quality of life and adjustment in individuals following stressful life events. For my Master's project, I examined the association between co-occurring health conditions at the time of diagnosis and emotional and physical quality of life in prostate cancer patients. I also investigated changes in the men's quality of life three to five years following their treatment. Currently, I am working on a project that examines how mindfulness and coping relate to emotional and physical well-being among metastatic colorectal cancer patients.
